Blast From The Past…

March’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar is filled with the must-have styles for this spring and Suzy Menkes’ spread on “The New Shapes” certainly didn’t disappoint.  Photographs by Camilla Akrans of model Carmen Kass capture a broad range of trends that span the ages: from 1940′s frills and waterfall hair to 1980′s bold shoulders and gold sequined jumpsuits.  But while these fashions are fabulous, we did a double-take on the flowers…

Perhaps the artificial flowers were already on location and the stylist thought they would add the right retro touch, but we haven’t seen the likes of these in decades.  We wish we could have created some custom designs for the photo shoot…  at least we would have removed the price tag from the orchid stem!

    Hmmm. My thoughts on gold sequined jumpsuits, might just rival yours on that orchid’s tag!

  2. Hilarious that they missed the price tag. Clearly they ought to have consulted you first!
